Lights on Afterschool Invitation for October 18th

Lights on Afterschool Invitation

On October 18th, 2012 our afterschool program will be participating in the 12th annual Lights On Afterschool nationwide celebration of afterschool programs. We will be one of more than 7,500 sites across the nation sending the message that afterschool is key to children’s success, and that we must keep the lights on and doors open after school. The Eliot School community is invited to help us rally support for safe, stimulating afterschool programs.

We would like you to be part of our local celebration scheduled for:

• October 18th from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

• Eliot Cafeteria- Champions Program

• ART SHOW & CRAFT ACTIVITIES with your Students!

o Stop by during the hours of 4:30 and 6:00 p.m. to have a student take you on a tour of the artwork and show you our program activities ☺

The benefits of quality afterschool programs are clear. They support working families by ensuring that children are safe and productive when the school day ends. Quality afterschool programs make our communities stronger by involving students, parents, business leaders and volunteers. Quality afterschool programs give children the opportunity to discover hidden talents as they grow academically and socially.
